    Just wanting to get and idea of where everyone is from, I've included the countries i've seen most often here at this forum.

    If you don't see you country:
    Just click elsewhere and PROUDLY reply to this post where you are from ;)

    And if you are listed here, shout out the region (state, province) you are from!

    Are you referering to your pommie or yankee accent? :D

    I was born in the US but I am a kiwi now. My parents currently live in Georgia and my best mate there is from Canada (Nova Scotia).

    When I recently got back from my holiday in the States I remember saying "G'day, ya'll" to my coworkers in Canadian accent. I never heard the end of it.

    My only answer is: Definitely!

    One other useful ploy when people ask me where I'm from is to look confused and say: Que?
